The Law of Torts by Philip Osborne is an indispensable resource for practitioners, judges, and students seeking a concise and accessible introduction to the principles of tort law in Canada, the social policies underlying the law, and current trends in judicial decision-making.

The book reviews the foundations, characteristics, and objectives of tort law generally with specific discussion of the central concepts of negligence, intentional torts, strict liability and vicarious liability, nuisance, and defamation. It provides insightful analysis of the relationships between tort law and other branches of private law, including contract law and restitution, and public law, particularly the Charter of Rights and Freedoms.

The fourth edition includes new sections dealing with negligent investigations, malicious prosecution and Crown prosecutors, responsible communication on a matter of public interest, reportage, and cyber-defamation. The Canadian law of torts is described as it was on 1 January 2011.
